Why don’t Sports teams have names that reflect where they are?

You know like the Arizona Lizards, Louisiana Cajuns, etc.

Green Bay Packers – Indian Packing Company

Minnesota Vikings – 400% more immigrants from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland settle in Minnesota

Milwaukee Brewers – Beer capital of the world

Minnesota Twins – Twin Cities

Dallas Cowboys – Texas Longhorns

Miami Dolphins – LOTS of dolphins there

New York Jets – First commercial jet service between New York and England

San Francisco 49ers – What they called people during the Gold Rush

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Pirates used the port in Tampa

Pittsburgh Steelers – Steel capital of the world

Oakland Raiders – Also pirate reference, but relating to China

Seattle Seahawks – State bird

ANYWAY, I could go on, but this should make the point. Almost all teams have local names, but their meaning may have been lost over time. Hope it helps…Kes

The Magic of Orlando Extends Beyond Disneyworld

Orlando, Florida, is a popular choice for parents who want to take their kids on a short break this April. After all, Disneyworld – the world’s favourite children’s theme park – is located there and thus provides an excellent place to let your children run amok! However, next time you’re in Orlando for some family fun, try and look beyond Disneyworld as April in Orlando could hold some very interesting surprises!

One of the most high profile events in Orlando’s April Calendar is the Central Florida Fair. Running since 1912, the Central Florida Fair offers food, exhibits, music, rides and entertainment for the entire family – so if Mickey ever gets a little too much, your kids will get to enjoy something non-Disney related in Orlando. The 2007 Central Florida Fair boasts a variety of attractions, including Kenya Safari Acrobats, the Sunburst Beauty Pageant & Baby Contest (open to girls and women aged 4 to 27 years) and the Frisco Brothers Exotic Annual Exhibit & Show, which is back for a remarkable eighth year running.

If you’re looking for some active fun in Orlando this spring, why not take your kids down to the Soap Box Derby Rally. Whether you’re a first time driver or an experienced soap box racer, make sure you seize this chance! Race cars will be available to drivers at the rally free of charge; and each driver will be able to make several test runs down the track to see if the Soap Box Derby Rally floats your boat. And since the Soap Box Derby Rally is restricted to drivers aged 7 to 16, you know your kids will be safe and have fun with other children their own age.

Finally, one of Orlando’s most exciting festivals held in April is the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival. This exciting festival has been an annual fixture in Orlando’s calendar since 1989 and brings the smells, sounds and tastes of the famous Louisiana Cajun Country to Florida. With sizzling Louisiana-style Cajun and Zydeco music, a relaxed atmosphere and first-class Louisiana cuisine, you and your family are sure to have a wonderful time at the Rajuncajun Crawfish festival! Whether it’s bluegrass, fiddle or classic rock music you love, the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival will offer you all this and more, accompanied by a Cajun buffet that includes double dipped black bayou fried chicken, corn on the cob, shrimp head-on Louisiana style, red creamer potatoes and more besides.

If you’re planning on a family holiday to Orlando in April, why not opt for a hotel suite for a more cosy family accommodation experience. You’ll find plenty of hotels and hotel suites in Orlando at your disposal, so you and your family will be able to enjoy the magic of Orlando in peace and comfort – whether you choose to spend it in Disneyworld or not!

Should all sports teams move out of Louisiana?

With all the hurricanes costing them millions why would they stay in that mess?

How much money can a sports team lose before they say that’s it?

Every year they lose millions!!

Player Profile: Clonie Gowan

Her real name is Cycalona Gowen because she was born during a tropical storm. Clonie grew up in Kiowa, Oklahoma and played sports in high school. She ranked seventh in the high jump in track and field and was also a championship-level basketball player. She had looks as well as skill in sports and the pretty young blonde won the Miss Teen McAlester crown in Oklahoma at age fifteen.

Clonie is a divorced mother of two and lives in Dallas, Texas. Her older child, a daughter, lives with her first husband and she is raising her second child, a son, who is a product of her second marriage.

She learned poker while in her teens and became more skillful after her first divorce when she would drive to Shreveport, Louisiana to play in the casinos. Clonie began to win several hundred dollars each weekend which soon became a steady income and decided she could earn more money as a gambler then working at her travel agency business to play poker full time and finds this world much more to her liking.

She became known to the public after finishing tenth in the 2002 Costa Rica Classic. The following year, she beat five of the world’s best women players – including Annie Duke and Jennifer Harman – at WPTs Ladies Night which was an event that was made for television.

Some of Clonie’s poker-related activities:

• Appeared on Good Morning America

• Mentioned in the New York Times, Dallas Observer, Texas Monthly, Esquire Magazine

• Guest appearances on Ultimate Poker Challenge in Las Vegas and European World Poker Championship in Dublin, Ireland

• Writes a regular Question and Answer column for WSOP Bluff Magazine

• Member of the Board of Directors of the United States Poker Association

Clonie Gowan is a member of the team of poker experts on FullTilt.com, Howard Lederer’s website, which include the following notables:

• Chris Ferguson

• Jennifer Harman

• Erick Lindgren

• Mike Matusow

• Phil Ivey

• John Juanda

• Phil Gordon

• Erik Seidel

• Andy Bloch

She is now a partner in a poker school teaching the basics of tournament play to women and men. She states the aim of the school is to instruct her students “How to be successful in a competitive game where your own money is at stake.” Additionally, she is writing a book “Good Girls Do Make the Final table”, which is scheduled to be printed by Harcourt Brace and is due out some time in 2006.

Unlike most other well-known poker players who are open about their winnings, Clonie, “The New Face of Poker”, is vague about her finances.

She also is involved in charities where she is a frequent host and does a great deal of volunteer work. At the Whisper Walk in Dallas to help victims of ovarian cancer, Clonie – whose mother is a survivor of this disease – was a very much appreciated guest speaker.

Clonie Gowan is considered a midlevel poker professional and has high public visibility. However, her name did not appear in Card Player magazine’s rankings and she has thus far not finished at the final table of any important tournament.
